    No.
    My twins were newborns in January - and I remember heading out in the middle of teh day once [trip to hospital] - on a 40+ day... they were covered with a muslin wrap just to get through the carpark.

    Ofcourse it is a little tricky to comment on your friend's situation without knowing exactly what they are experiencing...but personally? - No - I'd be staying cool inside - and maybe heading to the beach later in the day when the harsh sun is disappearing.

    Default Would you take a 2 week old to the beach in 43 degrees?

    re: sunscreen.
    We took dd for a walk one late afternoon when she was 4 weeks old, I was a paranoid 1st time mum and used Baby sunscreen on her, it was autumn and we had a blanket over the pram so looking back we didn't even need it.. But I thought it was the best thing to do at the time..
    within 30 minutes she broke out in a aggressive rash, she got quite sick actually and the dr was so nasty towards me about it.

    I honestly had no idea!

    So no.
    You can't use sunscreen on a 2 week old.
    Their skin is so thin and delicate it absorbs things much more quicker than our skin or a toddlers skin.
    My dr told me no sunscreen until 1.
    But on the packet it says 6 months (should have read that part when I put it on my new born)

    As for taking a new born to a beach in the middle of summer, during a heat wave with recorded temps of 40+
    NO.
    During spring or autumn on a cloudy 20is degrees day for some fresh air and appropriate shade and clothing yes.
    But under these circumstances. No.

    I probably wouldn't do it, but that's only because I don't like being at the beach at the hottest part of the day myself!

    If bubs isn't in the sun and is sitting in the shade, I probably wouldn't judge much either. Like Sonja said, there are lots of different factors.

    I went to the beach last week in the evening (20 minute drive) and it was so much cooler there than anywhere inside the house!

    I would be indoors making hissing sounds at the sun outside in protest....not at the beach...taking a 2 week old is madness to me.

    I went to the beach child-free on a hot hot day and there were plenty of kids there. To their parent's credit, the vast majority had suitable clothing and a sun tent.

    I tend to worry more about the UV than the heat - the beach is generally cooler than at home in my experience but UV can be high even on cool, cloudy days...especially at this time of year.

    I'd be inclined to not take a baby that young to the beach, I just don't think it'd be enjoyable being stuck in a tent. May as well stay at home with the air cond.

    Yeah, go to a kids movie, no one cares if a bub makes a few squeaks over the other young children who are generally quite loud. My DD *saw* Avatar at 5 weeks.

    No way. Not a chance. Not how it is in Sydney today, yuck.

    Aside from not thinking it's a good idea for the baby, at 2 weeks old my baby was constantly attached to my breast. Constantly. If we tried to do that on the beach in 43 degree weather she would've been covered in my sweat.
